Icon2 Best Argon Gas Refill Price in DALLAS area?

It seems like Argon (100%) gas refill prices have gone up. Those of you more experienced in Tig Welding than me (only ~2 years), where do you guys get your gas refilled and @ what price?

I'm in seabrook Texas and get my 330 tanks filled for 22$ each. Rent them for like 6$ per bottle a month. Air gas is way over priced imo.

You got it! I've been paying this for years. I was there first customer lol. Very nice welding supply store. It's called "welders industrial". It's a locally run place that to my knowledge only delivers tanks in a 50 miles radius. Also, there tanks are all very nice looking, they paint them Probley once every 2 months. Very clean. When i first started going to them it was only 17$ to fill the big 330ci, with free delivery! Now there is a flat rate 12$ delivery fee, and the tanks are 22$ to fill. And I believe I pay 5$ per bottle rental each month. I remember my first argon bottle was a little 125ci I bought from airgas (410$) and it cost 63$ to fill it. Then i kept seeing this place saying "opening soon!" So I went there, never looked back.
Thanks, collin

goddamn a 125 for 410$, brutal.

I just went to Airgas for mine, 70$ to rent for the year and then the first fill was 40$ or so. I didn't have a Tax-ID yet and most of the other places won't rent to individuals.

and the $58 is a descent price! I pay $32 for my 150, and that is the best deal I can find in southeast wisconsin, and I called EVERYWHERE. I used to pay $75 when I had to go through praxair and a local hardware store. that **** sucked.

We canadians get raped, with no lube!!!
I pay $150 to fill XPR Argon. That is after considerable whining and scuffing the dirt, and my pull as an instructor.(Our college is the largest user of gases locally)
The price most guys pay is $220.

From what i've been told the price is majoritly reflected by how far the transportation is from the source. Im paying $48 for a UHP 300, liquid is $289.

I pay $173 NZD for a G size argon (Not sure what that is in american speak), rental is $0.20 a day.

G size is our biggest bottle so I'm guessing it's 330cf

4 manufatuerers have 96% of the Argon production. Praxair just announced Argon prices increasing 20%, January 2013. That follows an 18% increase announcment in June of 2012. It is in short supply, expect all will raise prices as well.
We have 2 Honda locations using our patented shielding Gas Saver System. One with 120 systems for past 6 years. Thier tests showed a 40% redcution in use, by eliminating waste with our system. Check out netwelding.com
